Another Final Fantasy XIII Review: PS3 and Xbox 360

By Peter Chubb - Mar 6, 2010

With Final Fantasy XIII being one of the most talked about games this week, it comes as no surprise that there are now a number of reviews of the game. One of the most recent suggests that the Xbox 360 version is better than the Sony PS3 that one is still up for debate though.

The new incarnation of the game comes with a host of changes to the series – previous version now pale in comparison, well that is what Examiner suggest in their review of the game. This is now the 13th title from the series and there is no slowdown in the story or characters – this does not happen often in a franchise.

Some of the early reviews of Final Fantasy XIII did not have as much detailed information as fans had hoped, but Examiner have spent 55 hours playing the game on the PlayStation 3 so should be able to offer us more of an insight.

The Xbox 360 version is yet to be played by them – we are certain that they will do so very soon. Visit www.examiner.com now for a detailed review of Final Fantasy XIII.

    I own both, and I have to say, the PS3's version looks a little better.

    I got an early copy on the xbox and played through to the second disk and immedietly went out and bought the ps3 version which blows the xbox version out of the water. The 360 version is obviously being scaled and is compressed all to hell. I almost feel sorry for the xbox people that actually pay for the game. It looks dreamy on the a 1080p led tv on the ps3.

      The ps3 is the bomb ,can’t say it sucks yea sure people say the 360 is the way to go. Well…who gives a crap what they think. I think 360 version was crapy at some parts of the game and the picture was a little wierd, but the ps3 version didn’t upset me, it did it’s work. I heard people telling this almost every day. Ps3 Is the way not the 360! :). Darkdragon:)

  • im sorry i play the ps3 version ff 13 demo and its look awesome. i havent play the xbox 360 version but i will own both version march 9.so as far i see the ps3 the top notch and the HD is full 1080p and look gorgeous.but Final Fantasy all way has been on PlayStation for a long time oh course they will make the game look better because it was made by Sony. the all reason i played the FF13 demo is because i own the FF7 Advent Children Complete from Japan and it came with it.but i dont care with people say and i dont care they dont believe me.only God know im telling the trust.but who care if the ff13 on the ps3 look better than the 360 enjoy the game.yall going to kill each other over this game dang.

    Kevin:
    How would you know? Unless your Japanese then you don’t have it yet. Credible sites are saying the PS3 version is obviously better. Blue-Ray vs HD, 720 vs 1080, is there any question? No.

  • kevinmccauley

    graphics are phenomenal on both. who cares what's "better"

  • Seiko

    Scarface3010 is right. Doesn't get any simpler than that.

  • Scarface3010

    PS3 was the lead platform, PS3 has history with the franchise and finally PS3 has bluray. Xbox 360 was a port. There's no way Xbox is better. Sounds like Microsoft is throwing around some more $$$$.

      Too True

    • Derek

      Scarface3010,
      You can't possibly say what's better, because you haven't even played one version of the game yet, let alone both. It's very possible that a game ported to 360 could be better than on the ps3. Perhaps the framerate is incredibly jerky on the ps3, but smooth on 360. Perhaps there are good online features available only for the xbox version. Perhaps etc. etc. etc.

      I'm not saying this is the case with FFXIII, but please go be a sony fanboy somewhere else. You haven't played either version yet, so stop telling us which one is better

        Sorry, I have had FF 13 for MONTHS now onPS3, and played a early copy of it on 360.the ps3 OWNS the 360 version! I own both systems. but the truth is the truth.. the 360 is jagged and pixelated at times.

      • markymark

        lmao – go look at any techinical comparison website and you will see that the xbox version is only running at 576p and the textures have been compressed to fit on 3 discs that are only just over 6gb each (they cant use the full disc space for the 360 because of the M$ wave copyright data) whereas the ps3 has full use of its 50gb bddl. go google the comparison data b4 you make sweeping statements you joker XD
